When you join the FLIR One Developer Program, developing applications for the FLIR One thermal imaging camera is easy and convenient. If you have a supported device, you can download the Software Development Kit (SDK) and hit the ground running. We even provide an example application to give you a model for how your apps should be written. Let’s get started!
Hardware you’ll need:
1 A thermal camera:
FLIR One Infrared Camera
The FLIR ONE comes in either Apple or Android phone versions.

2 A mobile device:
Apple iPhone 5/5s/6/6s or iPad
Any iOS device with a Lightning connector running iOS 7.1 or higher.
Supported Android device
Any Android device from our list of compatible devices running Android 5.X or higher will work. If you’re developing for a Cat S60, you’re already set!
3 A development workstation:
XCode with iOS SDK 7.1 or higher
Android Studio 2.1 with Android SDK 5.0 or higher
The SDK is a software package that you’ll include in your Xcode or Android Studio project. It contains the libraries and API we’ve written to allow you to utilize the FLIR One from your code.
